On this day in History.

Stating the obvious, today is 1st May.  May Day was originally a Roman festival which began on 28th April lasting several days which marked the beginning of summer.  In England, the middle and lower classes would collect flowers.  And the phrase to go “A-Maying” was when young men and women would spend the night in the woods together!  The prettiest village maid was crowned ‘Queen of the May‘, celebrated by dancing around the maypole.
